Overview

I'm happy you're here and are ready to learn. I'm an artist, I work in the field of music writing songs, recording and performing. I've had the pleasure of teaching throughout my career, beginning as a tutor, moving on to a teacher's assistant in math and general studies, and later as teacher and demonstrator of chemistry and physics. I've taught private singing and performance lessons since 2008. I also enjoy working as a voice-over artist with experience narrating mysteries and dramas. I can speak a bit of 3 languages and can put on the English speaking accent of about nearly 10 different countries. It would be my absolute pleasure to share with you the skills I've attained over the course of my life and creative careers. I am looking forward to meeting you!

· Singing · Online She is wonderful! My daughter is 9 years old and LaAerial kept it interesting for her. She is a very dedicated and patient instructor. Not only did my daughters range and technique improve in a few short weeks she also learned industry specific vocabulary. I wasnt sure what to expect with online singing lessons but my daughters progress surpassed my expectations. She is confident and LaAerial encouraged her to find her own individual voice but kept it age appropriate which is important to me. She is truly a talented singer and instructor. A delight to work with.
